Samsung Galaxy A3 support.
Using your phone as a Personal Hotspot.
The Wi-Fi hotspot feature lets you connect up to five other Wi-Fi enabled devices to the internet using your phone (also known as tethering). Before using your phone as a Wi-Fi hotspot, you should check whether your contract or internet Add-on includes tethering. You can find out more information about tethering on your phone here.
If no devices are connected to your Wi-Fi hotspot, it'll automatically turn itself off after 20 minutes. We recommend switching the Wi-Fi hotspot feature off if you're not using it, to save your battery.
Find out how to:
On the homescreen, tap Apps
Tap Tethering and Mobile hotspot
Tap Mobile hotspot
Switch Mobile hotspot on
You'll see instructions on how to connect from other devices, including the password you'll need to enter into your other device
You should now be able to connect to the internet.
You can change your password to make it more memorable.
Tap Menu then Configure hotspot
You can change the name of your phone by changing the Network SSID. Enter the Password that you'd like to use. Tap Save.
